Some very special friends of ours are going through something horrendous right now. Todd and I have both shed tears today at the thought of their circumstances and the difficult decisions they’re facing. “Difficult” seems too benign a word. Sometimes recipes are “difficult”. Sometimes people are “difficult”. Parking a landboat in a crowded lot is “difficult”. What they’re experiencing right now goes so far beyond “difficult”, but I don’t know what other word to use.
The one shining light in all this? I can’t elaborate, but these friends are more extraordinary than we ever realized and it is a blessing to see how God is at work in their lives even through this mess. At how they’re ALLOWING God to be at work in their lives even through this mess.
This is only the beginning of what will be a terrible season of their lives. My heart is breaking for them and if I hurt this much, how much more do they hurt? Please pray for them. You don’t need to know the details. God knows exactly who you’re thinking of.
